On Saturday, the Berlin Township Athletic Association opened their season of baseball and softball. The rain from the night before pushed opening day games back one hour on two of the three fields, and 2 1/2 hours on the major league field. The coaches and AA members worked to get the fields ready for play. The day was sunny, but breezy, as the players, parents, families, and friends made their way to the fields at the John F. Kennedy school in West Berlin. The games started at 10 a.m. and lasted through 8 p.m.

The first two games of the day were a Tee-ball game and a minor league girl's softball game. The Tee-ball game matched the tie-dye team against the red team. The minor league girl's softball had the white with black pinstripes vs. the white with blue pinstripes. The last game of opening day, the major league boy's baseball, matched the blue team vs. the gray team.

The tee-ball league is made up of 4 teams, all from Berlin Township. The rookie girl's softball league is made up of 6 teams. Two teams are from Berlin Township, 2 from Berlin Boro, and 2 from Clementon. The minor league girl's softball is made up of 5 teams, with 2 teams from Berlin Township. The township has only one major league girl's softball team, which mostly plays other townships. The minor league boy's baseball is made up of 4 teams, all from the township. The major league boy's baseball is made up of 3 teams from the township and one from Chesilhurst.
